Favorite memory from high school:
During the summer after my 10th grade year, I had the opportunity to travel to Costa Rica with some of my closest friends and classmates. It was an absolutely phenomenal, eye-opening experience, and it truly changed my perspective of the world.

My AP Biology teacher in 10th grade was Ms. Donahue, and she forever impacted me by opening my eyes to a passion in science which I previously felt incapable of.
